Women's nutritional status is believed to deteriorate with increasing reproductive stress (so-called maternal depletion).
To evaluate this phenomenon, a new theoretical framework has been suggested that incorporates the concepts of a full reproductive cycle, relative lengths of potential depletion and repletion phases, and initial plane of nutrition.
We developed the corresponding statistical model and tested predictions provided by the framework about the effect of reproductive pattern on maternal overall weight change (deltaW) during one reproductive cycle.
Seventy-six Pakistani women were classified as well-nourished, marginally nourished or malnourished.
